I've been trying to make this for a year, ever since I had it at a cafe in Galveston, TX. Have tried several other methods but it never would layer. This worked great first try! I used 1% milk and a hand frother in an Irish coffe mug. Perfect.

I thought this worked out very well! The taste is excellent and it comes out just like a pretty coffee drink you would get in a European cafe. I used freshly brewed espresso and then proceeded with the rest of the recipe. Also,I didn't notice until after I had already prepared this successfully with skim milk that I was supposed to use whole. I thought it was just wonderful using the skim milk and it frothed up fine using a wand style blender. Thanks for sharing.

I made this with regular soy milk and brewed espresso and it was fabulous! Thanks for posting the recipe! Much cheaper than going to the local coffee shop... and better, too.

I have an espresso/cappuccino machine, but lost the frothing tube. Never thought about heating up the milk and then whipping it up in the blender. Now I can enjoy lattes and cappuccino at home again, so thanks for sharing. Also, I added about a tablespoon of simple syrup into the blender with the milk since a like it to be a little sweet.

This was new to me and I loved it. I used 2% milk and not quite the required amount of espresso powder (all I had in the pantry). It was delicious and surprisingly sweet for something with no added sugar. Can't wait to make this for my coffee-loving SIL. Thanks, I know I'll be repeating this often.

i am amazed at this recipe! Having just returned from my honeymoon in otaly i was desperate to re-kindle the experience i had of enjoying the latte machiatto overlooking the glorious views of Lake Garda. This recipe is fantastic. I thought i was going to find it hard to find instant espresso powder, but my local supermarket stoked it! I followed the recipe and was amazed at the results! I even took a photograph!! Thank you so much for helping me to revive my honeymoon memories!

I haven't tried this method but I do know that the less fat in the milk the better frothing it is. I have a cappucino maker so I will try this using it. I've heard of the Macchiato but I read the Macchiato means mark... because the espresso leaves a mark in the froth. Either way it's attractive when served in a glass.
